RE: Tires, again!

It may have ST on the sidewall but the ENDURANCE is nothing like the others.

RE: 2020 Chevy payload

2nd gen RAM's had D70 with auto SRW or DRW. If they had a stick it was a D80 SRW of DRW.

RE: Tires, again!

I only have one nit to pick with CapriRacer's data and that's the assumption that summer temps are the be-all, end-all for summer tire failures. How may MILES are traveled in the summer months vs the fall/winter months? Yes, I agree that temps are a =big= part of tire failures, but also miles traveled have to play a part. I'd like to see his data on miles traveled per failure and see how =that= curves out over time. Lyle I agree! Bottom line even he hasn't seen any legit failures.

A horse trailer advertisement disguised as a downhill towing comparison. JMHO. True DAT!

RE: black water holding tank valve opens but won't drain

How about simply adding enough water to begin with so these "FIXES" simply don't need to be used!

RE: Hydraulic fluid for Lippert Ground Control

Here is the link to the Lippert doc: Call and talk to the guy that actually fixes the POS rams that Lippert supplies. He will tell you NOT to use the fluid.

RE: 2020 Chevy payload

I put 5,750# pin plus 200#+ B&W Hitch plus in-bed toolbox at least 400# on my 15 RAM DRW putting the rear axle at it's RAWR of 9,750#. Thats around 6,300# or so "payload" not including us. Bottom line with the newest GM's you can tow what you want.

RE: Disappointed in Disc Brakes

On that year Ford truck, you need an adaptor to use the factory brake contoller for electric/hydralic brakes. Correct answer, it's the truck not the RV.

RE: black plastic waste pipe

There is a tool to cut old pipe out of a ABS fitting. Don't think you want to spend that much $$$. If you have a bad glued in valve simply buy the same open it up and remove the center slide portion and seals and install in old valve.

RE: Hydraulic fluid for Lippert Ground Control

Bob's RV Repair in Moore's Hill, IN said the anti stiction fluid is BAD for the internal seals as it makes them soft and causes them to roll. He is an expert at rebuilding the PIZZ poor hydraulic rams that Lippert supplies with quality components. Use a QUALITY synthetic ATF! I use AMZ/OIL Signature Series Universal ATF.

RE: Tires, again!

Based on the looks of your RV an "E" tire will be more than enough. GY ENDURANCE has been on the market for over 2.5 years with a STELLAR record. Simply do a search for ENDURANCE Tire failures, you won't find any that are the tires fault. If you do please post it! If it matters the GY is a US Made Tire! Here is a recent post from a highly regarded individual. A couple of thoughts: Background: I spent the last 10 years of my career analyzing failed tires. It's amazing how much information you can pickup when you look closely and know what to look for. So - Yes - we can tell the difference between a road hazard failure and a structural failure not caused by a road hazard (or 90% of the time, anyway.) The company I worked for had a good feedback system - known as the adjustment system. We credited dealers for tires they sent back that failed for a variety of reasons, including non-road hazard failures. Since we paid for the shipping, their only cost was the time and effort to fill out the paperwork. We got enough tires back to be able to plot year to year progress, and our data reached back decades. To give you guys a feel for the volume of data we had, the production levels every year were in the 10's of millions, so even a 0.01% return rate meant thousands of tires. One of the things we noticed was a consistent year to year return pattern. Returns for non-road hard failuires was tied to the summer heat. We hardly got any retirns in November to March. Returns peaked in the third year after production, but you could get a quantifiable sense of how well a tire was doing after the second year. I also spent a lot of time purusing the internet to get a feel for the amount of complaints conmpared to what was being sent back to us. It was clear that the complaint level was small compared to the quantity of tires we got back, but you could kind of gauge the relative performance. Having said that, I started tracking the on-line reports of failures of the Goodyear Endurance ST tire line when it was introduced in the fall of 2016. That means the first production is in the last few months of the 3rd summer, and the second year of production is in the 2nd year. Because I have not seen any reported non-road hazard failures - compared to previous reported failures for the Marathon, I am declaring that Goodyear has fixed whatever problem they had with their ST tires. ******************************************************************** CapriRacer Visit my web site:

RE: black water holding tank valve opens but won't drain

Moral of the story is to add PLENTY of water to the black tank after flushing.

RE: Dodge RAM flywheel

Contact SouthBend Clutch. Complete flywheel, clutch and pressure-plate around $1,200 shipped to you. Ask for who they recommend in your area. $2,500 would be my total cost guess.

RE: changed out MORyde steps

I was asked by the manufacturer to test the steps. I politely said thanks but no thanks as I am happy with mine.

RE: 2020 Freightliner vs 3500 GMC Dually at the Ike

"The Freightliner has a wire mesh front grill that looks like a winter grill but it's not. Go to 11:37 to get a close view." Thanks!

RE: Winterize or Not

Just blow out your water lines and pour some pink stuff in the traps. It's quick and simple. Then you don't have to be concerned with dropping temps and can do it after every trip during colder weather. I will add open the faucets while blowing out & drain the water heater also. I open the low points, blow out, drain water heater , anti freeze in traps. But, I keep my heat on about 50 and it very seldom gets into the teens here. Completely agree! I didn't think about the "P" traps first time!

It's funny how 14 and Shiny can't stick to what I SAID when responding or stop twisting my words. Two Peas In A Pod I say.
